Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro (Palazzo Santa Sofia)

Recommendation by Lemi

Palazzo Santa Sofia, which now houses the Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro, is an example of late Venetian Gothic architecture. The manor, built to be the home of a wealthy Venetian nobleman, seamlessly blends Moorish elements into its facade. Notice how the window frames on the main floor look like alfices, an Islamic adornment technique. Majority of its windows also feature inflected arches, typical in Eastern architecture. Take it all in from the opposite bank, as it grants the best and complete view of the elegant palazzo.
